Fund objective
The fund aims to deliver growing income distributions by investing at least 70% of the fund in a range of UK company shares. It aims to provide a dividend yield (annual income distributed as a percentage of the share price) above that of the FTSE All-Share Index. Subject to this, the fund aims to deliver capital growth. To achieve the objective, the fund manager invests in the shares of UK companies with the potential to grow their dividends over the long term. He employs a bottom-up stock selection process that looks closely at company fundamentals and may invest across a wide range of sectors and company sizes. The fund manager is also able to select stocks with different drivers of dividend growth to construct a fund that has the potential to cope in a variety of market conditions.
